Annual Address on the State of the Physician Workforce

AAMC’s Annual Meeting, Learn Serve Lead, was held in Phoenix, Arizona, November 8-12, 2019. On Saturday, November 9, AAMC’s Director of Workforce Studies, Michael Dill, delivered the Annual Address on the State of the Physician Workforce. He provided an overview of the latest physician workforce projections and the multiple factors that influenced workforce needs, including undergraduate and graduate medical education (UME and GME) trends, the workforce implications of emerging trends, such as work hours and retirement, and the growth in telehealth use. Mr. Dill included available information and the most recent data on the physician workforce, including trainees, practitioners, and faculty as appropriate. He also presented new data and trends in trainee and workforce diversity, current data and research on access to care, especially for vulnerable populations. The session also featured new data from AAMC's National Sample Survey of Physicians.
